Ecological Hermeneutics


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Proposals are invited for presentations in 2016. Proposals may engage with a particular biblical text or theme, or the methodology of an ecological reading. A strong methodological basis is encouraged (see, e.g., Habel and Trudinger, Exploring Ecological Hermeneutics, SBL 2008 , or the Exeter project, Horell, Hunt and Southgate, Greening Paul, Baylor 2010, or volumes in the Earth Bible Commentary Series, Sheffield-Phoenix), as is an innovative linking of contemporary ecological issues with biblical material, such as climate change or displacement (refugees). In 2016 there will be open sessions for which proposals on any biblical text will be considered. There will also be two joint panel sessions with invited speakers, one with Rhetoric of Religious Antiquity Seminar on the Gospel of Matthew, and another with Poverty in the Biblical World on climate change.
